Board Interviews Interim Sheriff Applicants | News

Three candidates for the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office appeared before the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday and answered questions about the leadership of the law enforcement agency and its 4,300 employees.

Supervisors listened to applicants Michael Barletta, Edwin Brock and Anthony Ray. The Board then voted to advance all applicants to the finalist process. The Board of Directors will hear the finalists again and will make an appointment at a special meeting on March 22 at 9 a.m.

Due to the early retirement of former Sheriff William Gore, who has served as Sheriff since 2009, the Board of Directors appoints an interim sheriff to complete his current term. In November 2022, voters will elect a successor to take office in January 2023.

None of the candidates being considered for appointment is a candidate for Sheriff in the upcoming elections.

Ray is an Assistant Sheriff who began his career in the department in 1991 serving for more than 30 years. Appointed Co-Director of the San Diego County Regional Leadership Institute.

Barletta is a former San Diego County Sheriff’s Department commander who retired in 2015 after more than 29 years of service. He currently works for the Anti-Defamation League as a private contractor training law enforcement officers.

Brock is a former lieutenant in the San Diego County Sheriff who has retired after more than 30 years of service. He currently serves as Chief of Police in Arvin, California.

Initially, there were four applicants, but Sheriff’s Hank Turner withdrew his name due to another job offer.
